How do I find the best conveyancing rates in New Forest for a £446,000 property?


Both high-street and online law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


What does 'gazumping' actually mean?


This occurs when a owner approves an offer and then rejects it, opting for a greater offer. The danger of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.


Which body looks after for monitoring the state of neglect New Forest conservation areas?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced information in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England in addition to the trend of the area. Local conservation

areas are nominated by the local authority (New Forest) who regulate conservation area concerns from including things like derelict buildings, side extensions and whether trees can be cut down.

We are buying a £125k residence in New Forest, what should be assessed for stamp duty?


The Stamp Duty you pay is based on the value of the house or flat. Stamp duty will be £1250 on a £125k residential property.


How soon do we need to get a solicitor?


With few exceptions, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.


What causes the conveyancing process to have so many delays?


Conveyancing can be obstructed. Homeward Legal aim to minimise their effect where possible by driving the sale or purchase forward.


What will a New Forest conveyancing lawyer recommend if the property we are buying is in a New Forest planning authority conservation area that may have an un-consented new windows fitted to it?


New Forest council LLC1 searches carried out by a solicitor as part of the conveyancing should establish the existence of the appropriate permission for changes to the property.
